... the chain, I look down and see all this bright red on the bike seat...what is that? oh, its blood dripping off my hand. Somehow I had sliced my finger open and with the adrenaline, didn't even notice. I could see it was deep and needed a tourniquet to stop the bleeding. My only choice, the sarong from the hotel. Not only am I ready to drop, but I am now one handed. I'm really afraid Robin is going to pass out. I keep telling myself don't panic. I'm the strong one and the ...
Katelyn and Lauren here! We started today off even earlier and even brighter at 5:30 AM. We went to the Kitchen for Devotionals led by Annie about 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 and how important it is to show love to those who we are serving and what that love is.Then we were served breakfast that consisted of eggs and ham jamon (like an egg and ham scrambler) and plantains (like a banana) and minty tea. Right after breakfast we jumped in to the grind of painting. ...
Costa Rica, the final instalment.
Soon after my last blog, we experienced the must-do activity in Monteverde, the canopy and zip-lining tour with 100% Aventura. You could tell that this was one of the most popular activities here, as it wasn't like any of the other tours that we’ve been on with the personal touch of a really friendly guide. Here it was just so efficient, and boom, boom, boom. After the safety briefing we were off on ...
... make me cry if we don't so please please please. To humor my mom, Costa Rica as of yet has been pretty cool. Surfing is fun until the waves are too rough to go anywhere, pretty sure my ribs are bruised. It's a miracle when we tore mom out because she is a machine and it drives me cray cray. We're just about the half way point in our trip and I will for sure be happy to be home when we get there, although I am enjoying the sun and the shopping. That's it. ...
... on our way out wasn't too bad and we didn't have any capsizes. Due to the presences of a couple of reefs, we needed to follow along after our guide in a zig-zag pattern in order to avoid being crushed on the rocks. Or at least that's what they told us. I think they just find it humorous to watch us going back and forth- granted there was quite a bit of that anyways. Steering a kayak is ok on it's own, but add a second person who most likely hasn't done it ...

After searching all over Samara for "affordable" (read: under $100 for 4 people), we were happy to find Mirador de Samara. I admit to being a bit skeptical by the "no need for a/c, as we get nice winds up high here". However, the truth had been spoken. We had 2 very comfortable nights with no a/c in our VERY spacious one bedroom condo with a SWEET view of all of Samara. Pool was clean, condo was bug free, water was hot, room fit the budget. Happy campers
